Homeshare with an older person in Witney

Ad ref# 16071423

TO EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST IN THIS OPPORTUNITY, AND TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT HOMESHARING, PLEASE CONTACT US VIA THE HOMESHARE OXFORDSHIRE WEBPAGE.

Sharing the tidy, well-kept home of a friendly and independent older lady who very much values her own company and privacy, is self-sufficient in many ways but owing to deteriorating eyesight, would now feel reassured knowing that there is someone else in the house.

The Householder has been a keen painter, a knowledgeable gardener, and a lover of the ballet but these things are less possible now due to failing eyesight. She currently listens to radio, has the news on tv and has appreciated having a volunteer reader for books, articles and other written materials.

Help with small household tasks, IT matters and other things that crop up would be very useful. Although the Householder has always enjoyed cooking, it has become increasingly hard to prepare food, so someone who enjoyed cooking and would be happy to prepare a meal from time to time would be a real bonus. A reader to share books and help with the odd set of instructions would be much appreciated too. The Householder is very sociable and has a wide network of friends. She has regular help from a gardener and someone who helps with shopping. Her supportive family visit regularly but do not live close by.

This Homeshare would suit someone easy going, friendly and who likes to live a quiet life. It is important that the Sharer would be tidy and help to keep an orderly environment that is particularly necessary because of the Householder’s poor sight. Someone who enjoys their own space, is content in their own company, is as happy talking as not talking, but who would equally enjoy gentle companionship would be a good match! It would be well suited to a good communicator who speaks clearly and is easy to hear and understand. A car driver who may be able to give the occasional lift would be a bonus.

The Householder is fully vaccinated and sensibly cautious. The Sharer should also be fully vaccinated, and willing to take precautions to avoid exposure to the virus and adhere to COVID regulations.

The comfortable, semi-detached home is set back from main road in the Tower Hill area of Witney - a short walk into the town centre and to the Windrush Valley. It is on good transport links, with a bus stop outside to Oxford/London.

The bedroom is medium size and with sole use of bathroom, (except for when family are staying). Another room could potentially be available as sole living space, in addition to the space shared with the Householder.
